Making Your Uncontested Divorce As Painless As Possible
Although divorce is never easy, the process is much simpler when you and your current spouse do not contest the matters at hand. If you can compromise on property division, spousal maintenance and child custody, then you can finalize your divorce much faster – and usually with less cost.
We can assist you with every step of an uncontested divorce. We are Benske Family Law, a law firm that handles Milwaukee-area divorces. Our attorneys work to resolve complex issues with as little stress and conflict as possible. With a background in collaborative law and mediation, they can guide you through your divorce and on to the next chapter of your life.
What To Know About The Process
Although Wisconsin does not have a simplified process for uncontested divorce, it does allow you and your ex to file a joint divorce petition. This expedites matters significantly and can save quite a bit of money. If the two of you can reach an arrangement regarding asset distribution, custody and other matters by the time you file, the court will finalize your divorce as soon as time allows – usually, only a few weeks.
Is Uncontested Divorce Right For Me?
While uncontested divorce will not work for every couple, it could be the right option for you if:
- You have an amicable relationship with your ex.
- You and your ex do not disagree on major issues related to the split.
- If you do disagree, you can work together to reach compromises.
We can help you reach mutually satisfactory solutions through mediation or collaborative law. This would allow you to avoid a traditional divorce and move forward as quickly as possible.
